Missing You Might Be Easier With ASUS

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

Although I’ve never sent a kid to college, I imagine that it’s a daunting task. Missing that child has got to be unbearable. Or, what if a loved one has to move, or even travel a lot? Connecting with that person face-to-face would be a great comfort. ASUS Videophone for Skype might just be an answer to the question, how can I make missing my friends and family easier, when they are so far away?

Not everyone can afford a laptop or computer with a webcam. Sometimes they aren’t portable enough. ASUS has reintroduced a 10”, 3.5 pound videophone for Skype that is portable enough to bring just about anywhere. This videophone can be used to make Skype-to-Skype calls, calls to landlines, and calls to cell phones. Even if you are not currently a Skype user, it’s free and easy to sign up for an account.

The ASUS is impressive for such a futuristic device. Once the initial set-up is complete, it’s pretty much dial and you’re good to go. After reading reviews on the videophone, most users have noted that it is far easier to use than a webcam—making it a great gift idea for grandparents and grandchildren too. Abt Electronics is a proud retailer for the ASUS Videophone for Skype.

Portability is a benefit of the ASUS Videophone compared to that of computer webcams. Resolution of the screen is 800 x 480 Pixel, on a 7” touch screen. It also boasts a great frame rate. The videophone can easily be packed or locked in a hotel safe. Take the ASUS with you for a video chat of up to 20 minutes, or talk as long as you want when it’s in the hinged base.
